VILNIUS (Reuters) – Lithuania last week successfully tested a coupling of its power grid to the European continental system, boosting the country’s energy security, Energy Minister Dainius Kreivys said on Wednesday.

Lithuania plans to fully decouple from Russia’s electricity grid by 2025, he added.

The test took place on Saturday, Lithuania’s transmission service operator Litgrid said.

“It can be said that on Sunday the three Baltic countries woke up more safe than when they went to bed on Saturday evening,” Rokas Masiulis, Litgrid chief executive, told a news conference.
